Best choice

LOHELANI

After numerous consultations with other lawyers, it became clear Samantha was the best choice for the job. Despite given a short period of time for preparation, she made sure that we were ready for anything that could happen, even addressing preparation for the future depending on the outcome of the hearing. Samantha answered all of our questions, was understanding, and laid everything out clearly. She was also transparent about what to expect financially and was conscious of trying to stay within our budget. Through her diligent and thorough preparation, we received the best possible outcome and I am so grateful to have found her.”

I don’t know where to begin! Shopping for lawyer’s in the beginning of this massive life change was hard enough. Luckily there are still good lawyer’s that put their clients first, and I found her. Samantha took care of and listened to every want, need and concern I had. Samantha went above and beyond, which made it seem like she cared instead of it just being another case. Needless to say I came out successful, but only from the hard work Samantha put into my case. I only put 5 stars because I couldn’t find the 10 star button. Thank you so much Samantha!

Samantha did a phenomenal job in closing my case. It was open far longer than it should have been, but when I hired her it was finally over. Considering who we were dealing with on the other side, I felt protected in so many ways and Samantha made sure I fully understood every step of the way. I cannot recommend her enough, Samantha is an incredible lawyer and I’m grateful I had her in my corner.

An Extraordinary attorney!

TINA

Let me start by saying that I met Ms. Latif during a very difficult divorce, a deeply challenging time in my life and in the midst of pandemic. There were multiple items to work with including custody for the children, alimony, house sale and an ex husband who changed several attorneys throughout the process. In a situation like that, you do get to know your attorney pretty well. The sense of calm and reassurance that Samantha portrays was extremely helpful. At the same time she was always prepared, quick to respond and always on the spot with her legal advice. She is also a mother and a wife and can truly understand the intricacies of a divorce. To me that was maybe as important as the knowledge of the law. Nevertheless in a legal sense Samantha is an outstanding attorney that fought hard to get the best possible outcome for me and resolve this divorce in the fastest way. That fact itself saved me a lot of money. She is direct and will advise you so it works out for you. She is honest and grounded and doesn’t bill to play around with your case. In the world we live in, that is certainly a rare. I hope I don’t need a family law attorney again but if I do, there is no question in my mind who to call! Ms. Latif has my highest possible recommendation!!
